Graticola Tostapane Brustolina

Our Graticola/Tostapane is perfect for preparing delicious and crispy bread such as bruschetta on your gas stove, but it can also be used for adding the crisp to polenta or grilling vegetables such as peppers, zucchini or eggplant. Our Graticola is designed to provide quick and even heat distribution eliminating the need for a high gas flame.


Manufactured from stainless steel, it features a convenient retractable handle and measures 8.5" x 8.5" (22cm x 22cm).


Here in the US, the words Graticola and Tostapane are often used for pretty much the same thing: A rather simple, low cost but yet effective grill or gridiron used for grilling bread and other foods on an open flame such as your gas stove.


The fact that Graticola refers more to a grill and Tostapane more to a toaster does not really matter as long as it comes to grilling something on the flame of your gas stove.


In Italy, Graticola's / Tostapane's are available in a variety of different forms. Some, such as our original Graticola, are perfect for grilling your bread, vegetables or adding crisp to polenta and others, such as our Tostapane, are great for making Italian Panini on your gas stove. Others are designed for grilling meat or fish.


The Graticola / Tostapane has quickly become one of the most valuable and often used kitchenware and is mainly used to:


- grill bread for bruschetta or crostini

- thaw bread and other baked goods 

- add more crunch to bread, rolls, croissants, etc.

- adding crisp to polenta

- roast peppers, zucchini, eggplant, and other vegetables

- and more


The Graticola is a perfect example for a basic but highly effective product that worked for generations and simply does not need any "modern improvements" other than the quality of material used for today's Graticolas. 


The reason why the Graticola is so effective and distributes heat very quickly and evenly is that the Graticola is rather thin and consists only of a base and a grid that lets the food "hover" closely above the base.


Easy finish - easy storage. Once done and cooled down, simply discard any breadcrumbs over the sink or trash bin. Since the Graticola is so thin you can either hang the Graticola using the handle on your utensil rack or retract the handle and store it flat in your drawer.
